There is a section on MathML and TeX conversion in the Implementation and Interoperability report at http://www.w3.org/Math/iandi/#TeX The W3C math home page (http://www.w3.org/Math/) also lists conversion software: Webtex, TtHMML, WebEQ. I must say I haven't tested any, so I can't tell you what they're worth. The Math Working Group is also working on conversions between mathematical formats, including TeX, as is announced in its charter (http://www.w3.org/Math/W3CDocs/mathcharter.html). > As I'm blind I'm interested also in MathML and Braille.

There is BraMaNet, a piece of software that converts MathML to French Mathematical Braille. The page is at http://handy.univ-lyon1.fr/projets/bramanet/ Searching for "MathML Braille" in google returns several interesting sites, suck as a Canadian "MathML accessibility project" (http://nide.snow.utoronto.ca/MathML/MathMLindex.html) to develop a mathematical audio browser (MAB). The page lists a few projects on expressing mathematics with Braille. Hope this helps, Max.
